i'm doing some cupcakes for a friend and she's getting them dirt cheap. if i were charging more i'd make some that look like a dog buti really don't want to spend that kind of time. she suggested a paw print but 6 doz. paw prints might get a little monotonous i'm thinking?

anyone have a good simple doggie themed idea?

Do you have a small dog bone cookie cutter? You could cut out small bones out of fondant. Good luck. You do great work, I'm sure you will come up with something great.

Well i like the dog bone idea as suggested by melonie...then you can do the pawprint and maybe a fire hydrant, cuz that would be funny, or even a simple collar on a swirl of icing... hope this helps...cant wait to see them icon_biggrin.gif

star tip white frosting to look like a white westie, buy some ready made royal eyes, a brown or black m&m for the nose, and a flattened out piece of a pink starburst for the tongue.

Don't know if this will help, but I did these and they were quick and easy:

I did the pupcakes from the cover of the Family Circle magazine mentioned earlier- the Westies were very simple and very fast. I used mini m&ms for the eyes, jelly beans for the nose, mini marshmallows cut in half for the ears and easily did one cupcake in under a minute.

oops, I forgot to mention that I used a regular marshmallow cut in half to build the snout...and pink royal icing for the ears and tongue

If you want fast and simple, the paw print would be so easy....or the bone out of fondant. Just cut those out a couple days ahead and it will seem like you put no time into it!

burgderb, what is bakerella's web site? I checked her membername here and there isn't any info. I LOVE the doggie pops, are they just lollipops covered with fondant?

thanks for the info!

These are her famous cake pops, there are several threads on here discussing them. Her blog site is great always coming up with new ideas, and shares step by step instructions
I showed them to my 8 yr. old she was begging me to make them

those are some very cute ideas. BUT how much would you charge for those doggie cupcakes. i think they have a yorkie -are those brown or grey?
